Lauryn Hill Hits The Charts After 10 Year Absence + T.I. Gets Animated + Chelsea Handler Gets Down With Hip Hop


Ever since she dropped the five-star classic The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill, the diva's sporadic recording and performance schedule has left fans panting and eager for more.  But now it looks like Lauryn Hill is posed to take the industry by storm again as she returns to the Billboard charts for the first time in ten years.  Details on L Boogie, T.I.'s upcoming hip-hop cartoon, and the hilarious Chelsea Handler solidifying her street cred when you read on...



Having leaked on the internet a few weeks back, the track "Repercussions" debuts on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart at No. 94 this week, marking the return of Lauryn Hill.  Though there has been no official word from Lauryn's camp about the leak of the new track and her participation at the Rocks The Bells concert,  the streets buzzing that she may be working on a new album.  Let's all keep our fingers crossed.  The game hasn't been the same without her.


In case you missed it, check out the track:





The KING is truly back and shining on his throne.  With a new wife, new movie, and new music, we will not be able to escape T.I. this fall.  And honestly....we don't want to.

Now, Tip is working on a cartoon.  Yes...imagine all that fineness in animation form.  The toon will be titled  “Lil Homies” and T.I. will serve as producer and will also likely contribute voice overs.  We love it already.




And as we get ready for the 2010 MTV VMAs and all that Kanye West has to bring, the show's host, funny woman Chelsea Handler, has reached out to the hip-hop community to let us know she has our back.  Chelsea recently put out a "statement" saying:

"This has been a huge year for hip-hop and rap, and it is well-known that I have the closest ties with these communities - musically and sexually.  I am to rap and hippity-hop, what Warren Buffet is to finance, minus the sex." 

Funny.  I heart Chelsea.  Between her, Kanye, Drake and a rumored Nicki Minaj performance that I know I will have much to say about, I will be glued to my tv...and my computer...as you know The YBF will be giving you play-by-play coverage of all the fabness and foolywang.














Why can't the fans of Lauryn

Why can't the fans of Lauryn just be happy about her comeback without throwing shade on other artist? Everyone likes something different so lets respect that and congratulate all the artist,especially our AA women,who are "making it". Why do we constantly have this crab in a barrel mentality? Do better people!!!!!

I am so happy Lauryn is back. She is a blessing in the midst of all the musical madness of Mnaj and other unmentionables. Im soooo hurt i wont be able to see her KILLLLLLL IT! @ Rock Da Bells tomorrow night but im just happy she is here. I just hope she doesnt play us like she ready to go all in and then dips out like she did with the Fugees reunion and that "Take It Easy" song. Lauryn take these "Rappers" to school.

Repercussions is a timeless

Repercussions is a timeless song... why does it matter if it was written/recorded in 1999 or 2009. It's a hot track and she's being recognized for it ... what are you being recognized for besides your hate!

MELANIE FIONA, KERI HILSON etc. i HATE when ppl hate on talented folks!!! but y'all don't hate on recycle RIHANNA and she can't sick to SAVE her damn LIFE!!! STOP the sh*t music should be about MUSIC not damn STYLE!!! most of y'all only like NASTY ho's in r&b because the have STYLE!!! CASSIE is hot garbage and a style-swagger of KELIS!!! and fucks DIDDY for an income!!! RIHANNA is a ho who can't sing and GOD knows what else she did for a RECORD deal w/ DEF JAM!!!

You don't like people hating

You don't like people hating on Lauryn Hill, but it's ok for you to bash the hell out of Rihanna?... Just because Rihanna isn't talented it's ok?

It's hard for quality artist

It's hard for quality artist to make it in this business today because of the low standards that gave been imposed on the industry, but just like Maxwell, Lauryn will have great success(even greater) because everyone still remembers that masterpiece that was "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill."

I can't wait for Lauryn to drop a new album! Her album is one of the greatest albums ever made. It was so well balanced, creative and thoughtful. She's a musical genius.

I LOVE that new Lauryn joint!

I LOVE that new Lauryn joint! I heard it on the radio yesterday evening...and I was sitting there thinking, this ain't no old Lauryn Hill song, so did she release some new stuff? And I see she has, she has been sorely missed and I hope she releases a 2nd album, cuz the industry hasn't been the same since she disappeared!

…Billboard Top 100 and this

…Billboard Top 100 and this single hasn't “officially” dropped yet! The game needs Ms Hill!!! Ten years is a long time to be away but I think certain artists should take note. Quality, Timeless Music is hard to come by these days especially when the market is saturated by so few. Good music is good music… GREAT music takes time ♥ ... To Bey and nem… Love yall but take a break ;-)

Lauryn we've missed you so!

Lauryn we've missed you so! Do y'all understand how heavy her concerts are going to be sold out when she comes back. MAN! I'm from Houston, traveled to Atlanta to see her years back and when I get there I find out she's cancelled her show. I was so upset about that. Did yall know her daughter has a Twitter page? She also has a Youtube page and sings on there. All in all I'm anxiously awaiting Lauryn's return.
